The kettle must have boiled earlier.
The birds appear to have found the new home for the feeders, and seem to be approving of it.
Just the north lake again today, and a brief glimpse of a Kingfisher, near the top end.
One day, I'll capture a good shot.
I noticed four Gadwall at the top end, and a couple of Wigeon, until Captain Pugwash appeared in a canoe, or something, and scared them away. Hopefully they'll be back in greater numbers soon.
And a Tern briefly flying around.
After looking through a couple of books, I can only think it's a Common Tern, although I thought these had moved on a while ago.
Back at the footbridge, a couple of Reed Buntings with some Chaffinch, a Robin ticking everyone off, and a lone rat making his way along the footbridge.
Apologies for the very poor quality of pictures today. One of those days when things go wrong.
I'm just glad it ain't Friday.
